Gibson and the GRAMMY Award-winning, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee SLASH, continue to evolve a partnership that crosses multiple lines of electric and acoustic guitars, apparel, entertainment, and the new studio album titled 4 from SLASH FT MYLES KENNEDY & THE CONSPIRATORS, which is the first-ever album to be released on Gibson Records, HERE.
In celebration of the new SMKC album 4, Gibson and SLASH have created the new Slash Les Paul Standard Limited 4 Album Edition guitar which features a unique hardshell case with a specially designed compartment inside the guitar case which holds a copy of the SMKC album 4 on vinyl, a 4 guitar pick tin and decal, and a signed SMKC band portrait (all included). A limited offering of 250 Slash Les Paul Standard Limited 4 Album Edition guitars were created by Gibson USA and are available at authorized dealers, and worldwide now on Gibson.com.
“As one of our most involved and engaged artists with three decades of creative collaboration between Slash and Gibson, there is no one else that represents the brand so completely,” says Cesar Gueikian, Brand President, Gibson Brands. “Slash is involved in everything from content and video creation to guitar R&D, and we are beyond proud of the latest evolution in our partnership with the release of 4--the first studio album release on Gibson Records--and to offer fans the unique Slash Les Paul Standard Limited 4 Album Edition guitar package.”
